Management awareness – ISO 14001 : 2015

Course description

Organizations of all types are increasingly seeking to achieve and demonstrate a high level of environmental performance, by controlling the impact of their activities, products and services on the environment, in line with their environmental policy and objectives.The International Standard ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements of an environmental management system (EMS) that enables an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives that take into account legal requirements and information relating to significant environmental aspects.

In addition, a number of surveys have revealed that the success or failure of an environmental management system depends to a large extent on the involvement, or lack of involvement, of top management, particularly since the 2000 edition of the standards, which calls for active participation by the organization's top management.
